Does DDDA support metabolism and weight management?

DDDA Metabolyte™ Weight Management
July 24, 2023

For dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as patent-pending Metabolyte™), research in animals and humans have shown improvements in metabolism and weight management.

Metabolic Health

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as patent-pending Metabolyte™) has been shown in animal models to not just maintain insulin levels in already healthy ranges, but to also sensitize cells to insulin. This is fundamental to human health, particularly for those who’ve been impacted by the high glycemic Standard American Diet. The potential implications of maintaining already healthy insulin sensitivity in humans include, but are not limited to: healthy aging, exercise performance, weight management and overall well being.

Insulin sensitivity starts in the muscle, so Metabolyte’s ability to be rapidly metabolized by muscle is foundational to metabolic health.

Weight Management

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as patent-pending Metabolyte™) has been shown in animal models to increase metabolic rate (metabolism/calorie burning) and improve fatty acid oxidation (burn fat). When combining a higher metabolic rate and fatty acid oxidation with maintaining insulin levels in already health ranges, it makes for a potentially powerful tool in weight management.

DDDA’s ability to help the body switch from burning carbohydrates to burning fat is what’s known as “metabolic flexibility.” Metabolic flexibility makes DDDA extraordinarily unique because only actual ketosis has been known to do that. Ketones like beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) or acetoacetate do not burn fatty acids – only dietary ketosis does. And most people cannot maintain dietary ketosis; so, ingesting Metabolyte™ is an ideal next step in weight management after a weight-bearing exercise regimen and good nutrition.

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as patent-pending Metabolyte™) comes in powder form, so it’s ideal for powder-into-water applications like hydration, preworkouts, and weight management powders.

Metabolyte™ comes in two forms: potassium DDDA and sodium DDDA.

The recommended dosing is 1.5g to 3g of total material. It’s possible to go higher for more acute benefits, but 1.5g – 3g does provide most consumers to feel energy and cognition, particularly when fasted. It’s good at any time, though they may choose to take it in the morning – even as their non-stim pre workout.

Because potassium is the most deficient mineral in the American diet, this is a big opportunity to help rectify this deficiency while also providing metabolic and performance benefits. There is roughly 340 mg of potassium for every 1000 mg of potassium Metabolyte™.


Where is DDDA found?

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as Metabolyte™) is found in some plants such as green beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). Other dicarboxylic acids can be found in castor oil, for example. Because DDDA is found in low concentrations in nature, the only practical way to obtain DDDA is through supplementation like patent-pending Metabolyte™. And only Metabolyte is self-affirmed Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) and regulatorily compliant.
